                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Now this is a scooby snack if I ever saw one!!!  I have to say that I'm more
than surprised to be squatting on the throne of Kati-Tei this turn.  Thankfully it
looks like The Wait did in fact wait too long to throw his hat into the arena this
turn, and as a result yours truly is defiling every hydrant in our fair city as we
speak!
     Grimm Lurcher... it was a pleasure seeing you across the sands from me last turn
and fighting you for the title.
     No challenges, no avoids for me this turn.

Until next turn.....
Same doggy time,
Same doggy place,
Same doggy channel,
Your Duelmaster,
Firehydrant Defiler

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in KATI-TEI this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as THE STORM FRONT is pushed out of top team by WANDERERS, who came from 
4th with a 4-1-0 this turn.  WANDERERS stable has parlayed this turn's 4-1-0 into a 3 
space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 1st place.  Good work, guys!  And 
let's see, SAMARA fought THE HAND OF DOG and gained 18 points and contributed to 
WANDERERS' 4-1-0.  THE HAND OF DOG has lost to SAMARA, falling 16 points, while 
helping make DA DOG POWNDAZ a 2-2-0 turn.  We should ask NYPD about the thrill of 
victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, he's now the one to 
ask.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing 
fighters do dishes at The Dripping Blade until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the THE PLAGUE 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on KATI-TEI, what are you afraid 
of?  And guess who avoided THE PLAGUE stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was DA 
DOG POWNDAZ.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was DA DOG 
POWNDAZ's warrior THE HAND OF DOG.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the 
Duelmaster!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that KATI-TEI has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in KATI-TEI and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond the 
Scribe

Firehydrant Defiler -- I never heard a fire hydrant actually complain about it. --
Grimm Lurcher

M. Chardinee.  Oh, well.  He'll do. -- Balin Chane
P.S.  I dragged that fight out to nine minutes because I'm reluctant to leave Kati-
Tei.

Old Yeller -- Seems like the Commission likes to see us fight each other.  Or they
lack the imagination to pair us with others. -- Marlin Reeve

The Hand of Dog -- And people worry about getting hairballs from the Stray Cat?  The
way you shed is just amazing, like the leaves falling in October.  Hair everywhere.
-- Samara

Funnel Klowd -- Ah... I wasn't actually laughing at you.  Well, I was, but I didn't
mean the way you maybe took it.  When you were announced, I thought they said KLOWN,
and I was all set to laugh, and I just forgot to get un-set, you know?  Nothing
really personal. -- Stray Cat

Devil Dog -- Repeat challenges are not a problem.  As you observed, who else is
there? -- Balin Chane
P.S.  Too bad I have to quit fighting here now that I don't have to worry about
dying.  I could keep going, be a special teacher.

Old Yeller -- If they heard you in Sunset, they probably thought it was another storm
coming. -- Marlin Reeve
